I feel so bad for DH
About 10 years ago my mom, sister and I went to NYC on a girls trip. We had a blast and spent a fortune! My mom wasn't about cabs or subways so she hired a driver for the weekend. He was awesome, took us everywhere, got us into all the cool restaurant, shopping, etc! He is from Bangladesh and had a toddler close to the same age as DD. We wound up meeting his wife, and anyway, I have kept in touch with them on social media.
I made a post about our cruise for my birthday nest year and she commented, long story short, they are coming because I still have some open rooms on the group booking! I am so excited to see them again, they are just the sweetest people.
DH just looked at me shell shocked when I told him. He was (sarcastically) like wow... you are such horrible person that a family you met 10 years ago wants to see you again, yet SS doesn't. Just the worst.- shaking his head, you could see it hitting him all over again.
I said that I was sorry that everyone else in our lives thinks we are pretty ok, SS doesn't want to do anything with us at all, no matter what adventures we plan. We have a good and happy life though and as long as we focus on that and he keeps a line of communication open, things could change one day.
I know it's not our fault. I know there is nothing more we could have done. I know all of that, and I think DH does in his head, but I breaks my heart to see him hurt. I just wish we could get the court resolution and be able to move on with our lives.
